The Weather Outside is Frightful

Well, the weather outside is frightful...
But the knitting inside's delightful!
And since I've no place to go~
Let it Grow, Let it Grow, Let it Grow!
With Christmas just days away now, my knitting definitely needs to Grow! Just like many of you, I'm sure, I am pulling some late nights and making a mad dash to the finish line. I still have two projects that need to grow into completion and (if there's time), two more I'd like to start!

This pretty, fluffy piece of knitting will be a full grown hat before today is over. It's a beautiful lacy leaf pattern that I'm using my favorite Cascade Indulgence Alpaca/Angora yarn for. The heavenly softness can't be described, it has to be experienced. I keep a few skeins of it in my stash all the time and use it in as many things as I can. It not only makes a gorgeous finished product, it's divine to work with. Since 99% of my knitting is done for someone else, whether it's for my Etsy shop or a gift, the whole knitting experience is of the utmost importance to me. Thus, the elegant sterling silver, beaded stitch markers!
At least this weather's good for something! So ~ make yourself a nice steaming cup of tea (mine's cinnamon), grab your favorite Christmas mug, & curl up with some knitting. Who cares what it's doing out there?!
"She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands." Proverbs 31:13

The weather outside IS frightful! I'll send you some pictures I took at lunch today...

You're doing what I WISH I were doing! Even though my projects are done, I'd still rather be crocheting something!

Enjoy your winter wonderland day!

Love you,
Becky

You just have to brag & tell me your projects are done, don't you?!

"the weather outside is frighting" from here looks like something I only see in Movies or Christmas cards that reflect beautiful winter scenes. Add on the Cinnamon tea and what more could a girl ask for? I am sure that is double pleasure for a girl that knits! Love your photographs

Well, I should not have said ALL my projects are done...just the ones I decided are priorities. I couldn't get all of them done.

By the way, those are your new stitch markers, aren't they? The bonus gifts? Very pretty!

Just so everyone knows...
Kathy says it's been 70 degrees at her home in Georgia and she's had her windows open. Am I jealous or what?!
And yes Becky ~ those are my new stitch markers. I love them!:)
